AGTMAN's post got me to thinking,

There was actually a very old German court case that hinged on a simplistic idea. "There is the right and there is the wrong. Never need the right yield to the wrong." Someone trying to force their way into your home or force you where you do not want to go is, with some exception, likely of ill-intent.

The comment on cheating and winning reminded me of some basis rules of non-consensual unarmed combat: A) Arm yourself and B) win

The "best tactic" is to avoid being taken at all costs.
This statement contains too many absolutes for me to fully agree with it, but I have to admit that my position isn't far from it at all.

The potential outcomes for being taken prisoner in your own home with your family are pretty horrendous. Preventing a home invasion from being successful by breaking it up in the early moments, even at a relatively high cost, makes a lot of sense.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?
